Thank you for posting this, deyzof49. I love these docs that tell the story of music, how it grows and evolves and moves people in that mysterious and special way. Its great to see a film that celebrates the roots of American music and upholds our appreciation for and indebtedness to our artistic heritage. I imagine this is the music Jerry and Hunter cut their musical teeth on.

If you didn't see Folk America at the Barbican, I think you might like this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gvk93
This from the beeb blurb: 'It features Appalachian mountain string band music, vaudeville swing, junk shop blues, creole dance tunes and folk country ballads, all delivered via energetic performances with a fresh twist. An eclectic line-up of young and emerging talent includes CW Stoneking, The Wiyos, Allison Williams and Chance McCoy, Diana Jones, and Cedric Watson and Bijoux Creole'.

Thanks - instant bookmark. Funny, saw your post right after I put in mixed country CD friend made and as Kris K started signing "from the coal mines of Kentucky"...
